Calangute to Baga and Candolin

We will be staying at Mira Hotel 30thDec for 2 weeks. This is our 1st time to Goa and was wondering if Baga and Candolin are walking distance from Calangute or will we need a taxi to visit these areas. Thanks.

I would take a taxi especially to Candolim, but then it depends how much you like to walk. Hope you enjoy your first time in Goa.

Walking to Baga is easy from the Mira hotel just walk on the right hand side facing the traffic.

Your basically in the middle of calangute. If you turn left and keep going straight you will eventually come to Baga, you could walk it but if you wanted to get to say Titos road then it's a long walk up a narrow road with plenty of traffic sometimes we walk it without realising how far up and down we have gone, nighttime is cooler in the day it's hard work lol but it is walkable.

Candolim a little further and more spread out. Probably best to jump a taxi, or turn right and keep walking following the road round out of calangute until you come to st Alex church and Candolim is at the end if that very long straight road. There are short cuts but too hard to explain.

Buses are readily available and have the destination on the front, just put your hand out and the bus will stop.

Baga will be very busy over new year so may be best to wait until after the celebrations before heading that way,

Do try nights out at all three resorts they all have great resturants.

Baga has a lively strip with some clubs too.

Candolim is more laid back with karaoke and live music.

Enjoy!

You can walk to both places if you walk the beach, it's a lovely walk where you'll see some great (and not so great) sights.

Hi Dragon, Sorry yes I mean st Anthony's chapel. Sorry for the confusion. And as bindoobaba says the beach is a great way to both destinations.

Thanks for that. I'm thinkin a nice beach walk sounds a good idea. Any idea about how long the beach walk would take. Excluding beer stops.
